Proverbs 6:6-23


6 Go to the ant, you lazybones;
   consider its ways, and be wise.
7 Without having any chief
   or officer or ruler,
8 it prepares its food in summer,
   and gathers its sustenance in harvest.
9 How long will you lie there, O lazybones?
   When will you rise from your sleep?
10 A little sleep, a little slumber,
   a little folding of the hands to rest,
11 and poverty will come upon you like a robber,
   and want, like an armed warrior.


12 A scoundrel and a villain
   goes around with crooked speech,
13 winking the eyes, shuffling the feet,
   pointing the fingers,
14 with perverted mind devising evil,
   continually sowing discord;
15 on such a one calamity will descend suddenly;
   in a moment, damage beyond repair.


16 There are six things that the Lord hates,
   seven that are an abomination to him:
17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue,
   and hands that shed innocent blood,
18 a heart that devises wicked plans,
   feet that hurry to run to evil,
19 a lying witness who testifies falsely,
   and one who sows discord in a family.


20 My child, keep your father’s commandment,
   and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.
21 Bind them upon your heart always;
   tie them around your neck.
22 When you walk, they* will lead you;
   when you lie down, they* will watch over you;
   and when you awake, they* will talk with you.
23 For the commandment is a lamp and the teaching a light,
   and the reproofs of discipline are the way of life,
